Subjects covered in this file include intelligence requirements on nuclear weapons and atomic energy; British worldwide intelligence organisation and the establishment of Joint Intelligence Bureaux in Commonwealth countries; the changing meaning of the term “Middle East”; the security of British offices in foreign countries; the selection of scientific intelligence priorities in occupied Japan; the exploitation for intelligence purposes of deserters from the Soviet zone of occupation in Germany; the publication of military and economic statistics relating to British war potential; and the repatriation of German internees and refugees.
